The King of Pop in Pop Art

This may just be the most random blog posting that RumbleChat have ever made, but it made us laugh all the same! This, um, tasty looking portrait of MJ is a creation by artist Cristiam Ramos. He uses an assortment of sweets, including gummy bears, M&Ms, licorice and peppermints for his artwork.
